Brake Caliper

Do you have fluid drips on the inside of the tires?  Do the brakes "stick" when comming to a normal stop causing a wheel to abruptly stop rotating and squealing the tire?  Do you hear rubbing or grinding noises comming from one or more wheels while you're stopping?  Do you hear a scratchy-squeaky noise comming from one or more of the wheels and does this noise get worse or go away when you press on the brakes? Then you probably have brake problems and you may have a bad brake caliper.

 

Brake Calipers, used on all modern vehicles, are part of the brake hydraulic system.  Drum brakes are still used on the rear wheels of some new vehicles.  Here's how brake calipers work:  When you push on the brake pedal, the brake master cylinder pushes brake fluid through pipes and hoses into the brake calipers located on each wheel.  This pushes the pistons out, pushing the brake pad against the side of the brake rotor.  The rubbing of the pads onto the outside of the brake rotors slows and stops the vehicle.

 

If you're having problems with the brakes or think you have a bad brake caliper, bring your vehicle to Clearview Tire & Auto Service for a correct diagnosis and professional guaranteed repairs which includes our Certified Auto Repair Nationwide Warranty.  We're in Hopkinsville, not far from Ft. Campbell and we've been here since 1952. Most repairs include one year FREE towing and roadside assistance, good 24/7 coast-to-coast.
